Thanksgiving Scarecrow

Happy Friday!

I hope your week has gone well! And I hope you are not in the path of Hurricane Matthew! It's been a long time since I've had to go thru a major hurricane. But since I grew up on the TX Gulf Coast, we had quite a few bad ones, so I sympathize with all those affected. And I'm sure we'll have a lot of people heading this way from the coastal areas of FL, GA & SC. I just hope we at least get a little's been so very dry here lately.

I used 3 Splitcoaststampers Challenges…the Sketch (SC613),  Color (CC603) & Monday’s Technique (TLC606) as guides to make my card.  I used all 5 of the colors from the challenge for my Thanksgiving card & did the bandana tech (for the Technique challenge) on the olive green strips. For the sketch, I let the legs of the scarecrow serve as the 2nd horizontal band of the sketch, but all other elements are there.
The scarecrow was colored w/ Copics, fussy cut & added to a stitched oval that I stamped the arced greeting across the top. The scroll image was stamped on the die cut olive strips & I used the white gel pen for the bandana tech. The ombre yellow strip started out a honey color & I sponged the Distress inks on it going to red at the bottom. The sponged & fussy cut leaves & punched branches were added around the oval.
Here’s a look at the inside & below it are the Copics I used.
Thanks so much for stopping by! Have a great weekend!

Amazing, Julie. I really like the colors, the sketch, the way you did the scarecrow and the paper strips but I totally love your explosion of foliage above the scarecrow. Awesome card. Hugz

This is so lovely and festive :) The colors are gorgeous and the leaves and greenery are the perfect amount of texture. Great layout too! Hope you don't feel the effects of the hurricane too much!

Julie, I just love this! The colors are so pleasing and I love that "crown" of leaves over your die cut oval. The strips in the back make at wonderful backdrop as well! Beautiful!
